Natural language processing/Data mining in Java

The input to the project is free form financial narrative from companies who see to repurchase stock.

The output is a well formed row of data that cannot normally be extracted using ad-hoc string

manipulations. Someone with a natural language processing/AI background and good Java experience is needed

for this.

The output looks like this:

symbol,min,max,TD,oddLotsHonored,tdp

vr,30.50,33.50,6/5/12,yes, yes

Symbol is the stock symbol: VR

Min is the minimum price

Max is the maximum price

TD is the termination date

OddLotsHonored: if they are honored the value is yes

TDP: Three day protect is true

The input might be:

Validus Holdings, Ltd.

Offer to Purchase for Not More Than $200,000,000 in Cash

its Common Shares

at a Purchase Price Not Greater Than $33.50

Nor Less Than $30.50 Per Share

THE OFFER, PRORATION PERIOD AND WITHDRAWAL RIGHTS WILL EXPIRE AT 5:00 P.M., NEW YORK CITY TIME, ON JUNE 5, 2012, UNLESS THE OFFER IS EXTENDED OR WITHDRAWN (SUCH DATE, AS IT MAY BE EXTENDED, THE “EXPIRATION DATE”).

...

and any required signature guarantees and other documents required by the Letter of Transmittal, are received by the Depositary within three business days after the date of receipt by the Depositary of the Notice of Guaranteed Delivery.

...

There may be significant variation to the above...for example:

Offer to Purchase for Cash

by

The Home Depot, Inc.

of

Up to 250 million Shares of its Common Stock at a

Purchase Price not greater than $44.00 nor less than

$39.00 per Share

THE OFFER, PRORATION PERIOD AND WITHDRAWAL RIGHTS WILL EXPIRE AT 5:00 P.M., NEW YORK CITY TIME, ON AUGUST 16, 2007, UNLESS THE OFFER IS EXTENDED (THE “EXPIRATION TIME”).

...

the Depositary receives, at one of its addresses set forth on the back cover of this Offer to Purchase and within the period of three trading days after the date of execution of that Notice of Guaranteed Delivery, either: (i) the certificates representing the shares being tendered, in the proper form for transfer, together with (1) a Letter of Transmittal relating thereto, which has been validly completed and duly executed and includes all signature guarantees required thereon and (2) all other required documents; or (ii) confirmation of book-entry transfer of the shares into the Depositary’s account at the book-entry transfer facility, together with

If you can make these work, you are done. Ad-hoc REGEX approaches are not generally good enough

for this work, you need NLP.

The WORK MUST be done in JAVA. I only know Java. The work can be a desktop application (i.e.,

it inputs the URLs, scans the data, then outputs the CSV text.).

No GUI needed.

Please do not bid more than the maximum budget allocated.
